When comparing Rocchio to Lindor, how do they stack up defensively? I understand that Rocchio's glove is highly thought of, but IIRC, Frankie's glove was supposed to be his strongest attribute, and even at the time he cracked the big leagues, his bat was not considered to be all that.
I'm very much a novice compared to most of you when it comes to baseball, but I could've sworn the sentiment on Frankie was that he'd be awesome in the field, but no one ever expected his bat to be anywhere near what it ended up becoming. If I am recalling correctly, then I don't think it's fair to expect Rocchio's bat to be anywhere near Lindor's just because his minor league numbers are comparable to Lindor's.
Well Rocchio's bat is very similar to Lindors, from the way he hits from both sides of the plate and whatnot plus he is supposed to be just as good if not better than Arias at SS... I mean if you did MLB comparisons, Arias looks closer to Correa while Rocchio is Lindor... I mean on paper, it's hard not to be excited about both guys since they compare to pro All-star SS. If I said Rocchio doesn't have the same upside as Lindor I'd be lying as well. We don't know if the power will be there, but it be hard to say his numbers won't be very good if he hits his potential. He has to get more walks and take less SOs going forward but otherwise, he has just about the same scouting report as Lindor had...
